- Black Diamond
Black Diamond have been making top end gear for climbing, hiking and skiing since 1957, and today they continue to lead the way with their huge line of quality driven products.
Aluminium is strong and lightweight making it an ideal material for cutting through snow and ice quickly and efficiently. Aluminium shovel blades can come in a variety of grades which determines the alloy composition. Most avalanche equipment uses aluminium alloys containing magnesium, silicon or zinc. Aluminium shovels tend to be more expensive than polycarbonate shovels.
Static shafts come with a fixed length and are more popular with weight concious users or those who only need an occasional shovel.
These shovels come with a height adjustable shaft which improves shovelling efficiency allowing you to get more leverage on the snow. The longer the shovel handle, the more efficient your shovelling should be.
T-grip handles are small and lightweight and as the name suggests are shaped like the letter T. These are the most popular handle types found on avalanche safety shovels.
D-Grip handles resemble those found on tradiaitional garden shovels and as the name suggests are shaped like the letter D. D-Grip handles give you maximum grip and leverage when shovelling larger volumes of snow. Less shovelling motions means less energy wasted during a rescue.
Most snow shovels fit into this weight category and offer a good mix of weight and strength. These shovels often feature a mix of aluminium and polycarbonate to give the best strength to weight ratios.
Heavier shovels tend to be used by more hardcore backcountry riders who need power and performance from their equipment. Heavier shovels often include additional features such as snow saws built into the handle.
- Pick/Hoe Function
These shovels feature blades which can be rotated or attached to the grip end of the handle to create a pick or chop option for rapid snow movement.
- Snow Saw
These shovels come with a snow or wood saw included, usually integrated into the shovels handle.
- Snow Anchor
These shovels can be used as a snow anchor allowing you to safely descend gnarly terrain in tight situations. Also known as a deadman, snow anchors are dug into the snow to secure a rope or line to.
- Rescue Sled
These shovels can be converted into a rescue sled to quickly get injured riders off the mountain. Shovel blades will usually have strategically placed holes which allow you to lash them together to create a sled.
- Folding Handle
These shovels come with a folding function where the handle folds into the blade giving a more compact shovel for storage and allowing for lightning fast deployment in an emergency.
